Poor start befalls Greene in MAC finals

ONEONTA Greene was fighting an uphill battle almost from the opening tip.

Harpursville drained nearly everything directed at the rim to build a 16-point lead in the games opening stanza, and the Hornets turned back every Greene rally winning 47-43 in the Midstate Athletic Conference championship game Saturday at SUNY Oneonta Fieldhouse Saturday afternoon.

Hannah Kimmel scored a game-high 27 points for the Hornets, who also won last years MAC title game over the Trojans. Alycia Kimmel added 11 in the victory that included a a key three-point play in the final minutes as she moved over 1,000 points for her career.

It was a repeat title for Harpursville, who rallied to beat Greene by three a year ago. This time, the Hornets played from the front the entire way. You cant take anything for granted, and after last year, I told the girls to enjoy it, said Harpursville coach Kurt Ehrensbeck. I knew it would be tough to get back here, and Im thrilled with the way they played. Were starting to put a lot of good things together.
